Pogodin Igor "FREE CHOICE AS A VALUE OF PSYCHOTHERAPY"

Abstract. The present article is an attempt to attract attention of free choice for person. The psychotherapy is considered by the author as some space which is focused on the restoration of person’s ability to choose. The choice is considered as some elementary mental act which is indecomposable on elements and has no bases except itself. The separate attention is given to the value of right for responsibility, which restoration is important for the process of free choice. The curious analogies between the concept of field and the principle of Dao are represented.

Key words: dialogue-phenomenological psychotherapy, choice, field situation, contact, experience, Dao, right for responsibility, doubt, self-control of contact.
